Perfection to Perspective - Lessons I Learned As I Went from Nearly Divorced to Very Happy
Excerpt From This eBook
As I looked inwards, I realized I had begun to minimize and take for granted the special things my husband did for me day in day out; things he didn’t have to do but chose to do because he loved me. Things such as cooking dinner multiple times a week to save us money, running with me to encourage me to exercise, and even putting up with my mood swings. When did all these things go from being special to something I expected and even demanded?

I began to think of other things I had attached to love; things that I subconsciously demanded of love; things that if I did not get made me upset; things that I felt entitled to receiving from my husband.
